laying his left hand on two bibles -- one owned by abraham lincoln and the other owned by dr. martin luther king, jr. afterward, obama will deliver a speech laying out his plans for the next four years. the nro ceremony will include music from singers james taylor, beyoncÉ, and others which will carry live during our extended five-our inauguration special. after our regular broadcast ends, we will continue to bring you coverage until 1:00 p.m. eastern standard time, including the swearing in ceremony. some stations will run the whole five our special, for others you can go to democracynow.org. this year, the inauguration also comes on the federal holiday in honor of dr. martin luther king, jr., who delivered his "i have a dream" speech 50 years ago, not far from here at the lincoln memorial. later in our special coverage, we will air excerpts of some of dr. king's less often played speeches, including "beyond vietnam." why he opposed the war in vietnam. but first, we turn to some of the voices of hope and resistance from sunday night's piece ball. not affiliated with any political p
to be taking the oath on lincoln's bible and martin luther king's bible. >> if i were him i would pay attention to one of the best inaugural speeches at the time which is i think not exactly the same but most similar was 1865. >> lincoln's second term. >> lincoln's speech used the word "i" one time. >> setting the bar very high. >> but i think we are at probably in this country at one of the most divisive polarized times we've had since the civil war and in that speech lincoln talked about we both pray to the same god, malice towards none, charity for all, and all of that, and i think this president, which i don't think will do, should come with a sense of humbleness, a sense of humility and a sense that basically the biggest problem he has in this country is the divisions that exist in this country that have only been made worse in the course of his presidency. age divisions, sex divisions, church divisions, all the divisions that exist in this country, he has to figure out a way to bring people together and solve some of the problems. >> which is why i think ping is a good example. he takes t
of martin luther king and abraham lincoln. this is martin luther king day. we celebrate that, as well. the second time a president has been inaugurated on martin luther king day. about 800,000 people will be there on the mall. a little bit smaller than four years ago. but no less buoyant. a lot of smiling faces out there. we hear the choir of p.s. 22 in staten island. >> they are the largest choir in staten island. and i believe they are fifth graders. let's listen to them for a second. ♪ don't pay no mind to the feeling, until you feel it ♪ >> we love the caps. we love the swaying this morning. we've been thinking to ourselves, a second inauguration is typically not as -- not as surprising as the first inauguration. but nonetheless, it rededicates this country to big ideas. and the person who has to do it in his speech, walking up to the podium, is the president. we saw the first family walking in to st. john's church earlier this morning. >> they're at that worship service right now. there they are, right there, just before they walked into st. john's episcopal church, across th
address in history is the second inaugural address which is lincoln which some people say surpasses the gettysburg address. it's the best lay sermon no history. >> and dr. jill bide ep is accompanied by honey alexander, the wife of senator lamar alexander. and by debby boehner, wife of house speaker john boehner. sorry to interrupt you there. >> more recently, you may disagree with the content and the tone but no one will dispute the fact that george w. bush was aiming for the bleachers with his second inaugural with what he called his freedom speech which is -- in terms of projecting american force, moral and military around the world in the wake of 9/11 and the doctrine of preemptive military action. >> you knows the reference to lincoln, we talk about being in a divided america now. in many ways we are politically. but you think about lincoln and that inauguration, both of his, it was a different level. >> different level all together. he is involved in the conflict where half a million people would be killed, the end of channeled slavery. a lot is at stake. we're fighting now bu
of texas. he can rise above everyday politics and speak to history. lincoln did in the 1865, f.d.r. in 1937, now it's obama's chance." did he do that? >> yeah, i think he did it pretty well. this wasn't lincoln 1865 but we haven't had one since. the closest was roosevelt 1937. we're not likely to see that, charlie. i thought he did whatrand said he should do. i appreciate what mark is saying but i think this is not a programmatic speech. this is not a speech where you talk about here's my four-point jobs program. it's a speech about vision and i thought he gave a good sense of where he wanted the country to be i think it clearly was a progressive democratic speech. in f you read reagan's in 1985 it was a conservative republican speech. and a as for those who say -- i watched fox news who say he didn't offer olive branches or reach across the table to try to encourage birtisanship, i would note 16 years ago bill clinton in his second inaugural said that you have sent a democratic president and a republican congress back to washington, you didn't send us back to engage in bickering and partis
. >> of course, there was lincoln's second inaugural where he talked about the wounds of the nation. we know that the president has been working on this president for weeks and major garrett, our chief white house correspondent, is at the white house this morning with a little bit of insight on what we might hear today. >> well, good morning, scott. those closest to the president tell us this speech is in the moment and it's going to talk, they hope, credibly, believably about responsibilities ahead. and the prospect for not only bipartisan compromise, and things that didn't seem achievable four years ago. it might be worth reminding us ourselves how the president ended first inaugural address four years ago. scott, the president talked about america being in the midst of a winter of our hardship and he urged the nation to brave icy currents and to endure whatever storms may come. there was a sense of forboding then, a sense of crisis, both economic and otherwise, that white house advisers that he feels is no longer as present now as it was then. so that's part of the optimistic note he'll s
: and abraham lincoln's, delivered to a nation divided by civil war. >> with malice toward none, with charity for all. >> reporter: a third theme, renewing our commitment to the values of our founding fathers. perhaps it's surprising the president found inspiration in the words of this former a adversa adversary. >> there can be no human rights without human liberty. >> reporter: aides tell us that, although the president disagrees with mr. bush's policy, he's moved by the speech's democratic principles. >> freedom by its nature must be chosen and defended by citizens. >> reporter: a message, aides say, the president will echo today, as he did at the white house last week. >> that most fundamental set of rights, to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness. those rights are at stake. we're responsible. >> reporter: of all his predecessors, the president says he is most inspired by president lincoln. >> that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth. >> reporter: in november, mr. obama screened steven spielberg's movie "lincoln" at the white ho
the quite remarkable book, april 1865 about lincoln's last days and inauguration is with us here. real quickly, jay, before the president comes out and the vice president, second inaugurations, what is special about them? >> it is special because it marks the continuing of a second term. of course we think of abraham lincoln's masterpiece second inaugural which inspired all americans of his day. i think really it's a day of humility. george washington put it best. he said after taking the oath of office my hand trembles but my heart does not. i think that pretty much sums it up. >> his was the shortest inaugural address, first ever, 135 words. lincoln's was only 700 words in 1865. a lot of people think it was the greatest speech a president ever delivered. >> it was the greatest speech a president ever delivered. the nation was in the throes of a civil war. lincoln was exhausted. before he gave the speech he spent time in the capitol signing bills. there was a lot to work to be done. >> with malice toward none and charity for all. obviously the civil war was about to end and he was ver
washington, jefferson, and lincoln. both a message of humility and of inspiration to someone taking the oath of office for president. >> this is now the biden family. the biden brothers who have been a campaign concert with their father the other night when he was at the iowa ball. he said he was proud to be president of the united states meng corrected himself and said he is proud to be vice president of the united states. it is said that he does want to be president and he will throw his hat into the ring as soon as this gets underway. >> there are a couple of people who are likely to throw their hats in the ring, including mrs. clinton. they have used this family bible and all the swearing sin and his family. president obama we used to buy votes. i think history should note i saw one of the people on the stand who was jay-z. the first time that he has been on the inaugural stanford presidential inauguration. [laughter] also beyonce will be performing and james taylor and kelly clarkson. megyn: i'd like to take that back. you can start from scratch. but can you get through the rest of the
crisis. we talked about abraham lincoln's second inaugural while the civil war was still going on. we talk about f.d.r.'s "we have nothing to fear." the great depression was on and unemployment with such staggeringly high numbers so this is a time where people have felt improvement since president obama came? we have to remember the crash of the economy stock market in such terrible shape. it's been a progressive incrementalism. but i have to say this speech is part of a progressive tradition of a theodore roosevelt speech in kansas where barack obama in 1911 when -- in 2011 he went and if you read the t.r. speech "the new nationalism" you'll find hit in the speech he gave today. you'll find it at f.d.r.'s second inaugural and in many of martin luther king's speeches. people talk about kennedy's inaugural about swords and switchbacks. it's a technique that worked brilliantly for john f. kennedy but i think the president had caught the aura of dr. king today quite well. >> pelley: and this day being inauguration day and martin luther king day all at the same time. doug, thanks very muc
republicans elected a white house screening of "lincoln" last month. had mitch mcconnell, john boehner, lamar alexander attended, they were all invited, they would have joined not only nancy pelosi, harry reid but steven spielberg, tommy lee jones. as tip o'neill famously said about his political foe, ronald reagan, love the sinner. hate the sin. when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neill over to the white house for drinks and raise a glass to one another. there's no shortage of parties planned around inauguration 2013. here is hoping it spills over to the next four years and both sides of the aisle make a move to be more social and more civil. and, hence, more productive. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz, starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome "the ed show" from new york. republicans are raising the white flag. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. >> the republican game of chicken is over. eric cantore proposes a three-mo
their sauerkraut. >> they were invited to a screening of "lincoln," apparently at the very last minute -- >> nobody's perfect. >> i would think when the president invites you to see a movie at the white house, you might want to go. maybe if you were disagreeable in nature, not fun and quite frankly not interested in getting anywhere on spending, maybe you would decline. look at the president. why don't i play that sound bite again, no matter what you think of his ideologically, joe, wouldn't you want to have a beer with that guy or a beer with mitch mcconnell. >> you keep interrupting. >> we should get a jar. >> should get a jar. he's a likable guy. we spent time with him. i like him an awful lot. he's ae's a likable guy. he hasn't reached out to republicans and he hasn't reached out a lot. when he reached out, they haven't come. he said his daughters don't want to spend that much time with him. he will have a lot of time to play cards. >> get merlot. >> cigarettes. will the president let them smoke? >> coming up. arianna huffington and nbc director chuck todd and "washington post," eugene robinso
ceremony on martin luther king employing bibles by martin luther king and president lincoln. an address down the mall toward lincoln's memorial where dr. king gave his most famous speech. to spell out the country his vision for the next four years. it is america's quadrennial celebration of the office of the presidency, the orderly transition of power, the luminaries, the singers, the salutes, the speech, the pomp, the circumstance, the second inauguration of president barack obama starts right now. >>> welcome to washington. it is chilly but frankly bearable outside as the country prepares to celebrate the peaceful maintenance of power, the transferns of power from the first term administration of president barack obama to his second term administration. the president was officially sworn in by chief justice john roberts yesterday at the blue room at the white house as the first lady and the obama daughters looked on. but in the little less than two hours the president will affirm that oath before a much larger crowd with 100% more pomp and an equal proportion of circumstance. we have
of all time at 135 words. lincoln's terribly famous one in 1865 just 700 words. is shorter better the second time around? >> i think typically less is more with these kinds of speeches, but it's hard. you have a president who has been re-elected who knows this will be the last time he or she will ever do this, and they typically have something on their minds they want to say and they figure they're going to take the moment to do it, but by and large they're all better served if they can keep these things shorter rather than longer. >> don, did you write a short one for clinton's second inaugural? >> president clinton's second inaugural was longer than his first. it didn't stretch on and on, but i think we would have liked -- >> was that his fault or your fault? >> no comment, no comment. we would have liked to have been able to have another day for another edit, but it was a good speech, and, again, you know, they have something to say. president clinton in that case was talking about the 21st century and the millennium that we were moving towards and how he wanted america to come
, four presidents took the oath of office. here abraham lincoln served his single term in congress, and john quincy adams, the only former president to return to serve in the house spoke out against slavery. today we also remember in event that took place outside the building but reverberated within. this year marks the 50th anniversary of the reverend r. luther king junior's march on washington, which spurred passage of the historic civil rights laws. we are honored to have with us a colleague, congressman john lewis, a speaker at that historic march. [applause] ongressman lewis' life exemplifies the courage and sacrifice that has made our nation great. please stand and take about what so we can all recognize you. [applause] -- take a bow so that we can all srecognize you. behind us, the painting we have chosen for this luncheon is at niagara falls. 6.is was painted in 1850 sike for me, niagara falls never fails to inspire a tremendous all of the natural beauty of our country. then and now, the mighty falls symbolize the grandeur, power, and possibility of america. i want to thank
"struggle" means. you may ahve heard about the two bibles he used, the lincoln bible and the mlk bible. should we care what book the oath is sworn upon? we go to san antonio, texas. liz is on the republican line. guest: i have been a democrat voter for 53 and i decided with everything i saw, i changed to republican. there are a lot o fissues i don't believe in is if it is in your heart you want to make a change -- you stand under the flag and say i am an american no matter once and i will do my best as a citizen, as a person that wants the best for the country and not just say one thing and expect handouts and expect -- all these kinds of changes. salute the flag -- my husband was in the military. i am an american patriot but when yo useu see things people vote for to get that vote, are you going to really stand and put a flag -- every day of my life i've had a flag in front of my home and i will never stop having that flag. and i would like to know how many of those people that are going to get helped with -- will stand under that flag and truly believe in the flag in which we should
]. >> this was not lincoln, although lincoln's second inaugural is referenced early on in the speech. that was in the middle of the civil war when lincoln gave that. this is not f.d.r., we have nothing to fear but fear itself, in the middle of the gr"great depression." a speech on social justice and injecting into the main fabric of american history and seneca falls and what that meant in 1948, civil rights movement and equality and inject seneca falls and mentioned women about three different times, mentioned stonewall, which when i went to graduate school here at georgetown, stonewall was considered lefty history not in the main fabric of the mainstream books, he threw stonewall in there as if it was a military battle site. and then selma. i thought that made it a historic speech. i can see why the republicans aren't that happy with it. it did seem to be a speech that appealed to the base largely. those reasons and then finally climate, joe, the president not talking about climate in '12, in debates climate didn't come up. the journalist never asked one climate question. i think 50 years from now, climate
lincoln. it is the right of everyone to have life and liberty. these unborn babies across the country are being killed. we have a pro-life charity and we are trying to call to attention a look at these innocent little ones and an urge for these women to choose life. over 50% of americans are pro- life now, that should be the number-one topic. you should be talking about a personhood amendment, just like lincoln talked about freeing the slaves. host: we will be talking about the agenda for the second term in the last half of "washington journal" this morning. we will talk about whether there could be another contraception fight like in the first term. the front page of "the washington times" this morning is on the abortion battle. an estimated total of 54 million pregnancies have been terminated since 1973, but the moral and political question around it remains on settled, when the supreme court issued its decision so many years ago. in a last hour we will be talking to a writer for "vanity fair." he will be talking about the women behind roe v. wade and we will be talking about that d
the steps of the lincoln memorial to finally reach the walls of the white house. [cheers and applause] it is that spirit that we not only inaugurates a new administration, we have the hope, vision, unity, and the renewed call to greatness inspired by the 44th president of the united states, barack obama. thank you and god bless america. at this time, i call upon dr. rick warren, pastor of a church in lake forest, california, to provide an invocation. [applause] >> let us pray. almighty god, our father, everything we see and everything we can't see exist because of you alone. it all comes from you and it all belongs to you and it all exists for your glory. history is your story. the scripture tells us that the lord is our god. the lord is one. you are compassionate and merciful one shoule. your loving to everyone you have made. today we rejoice in america's peaceful transfer of power for the 44th time. we celebrate a lynch point in history with the inauguration of our first african-american president of the united states. [cheers and applause] we are so grateful to live in this land, a
the president took the oath of office with his hand on the bibles that belong to president lincoln and dr. king. after the inaugural luncheon in the capitol building, president obama took a moment to reflect at a statue of dr. king. soon, a statue of rosa parks would join that tribute of dr. king inside the capital. we've seen the president reflect on the civil rights movement. the president explicitly evokes their sacrifices in his inaugural address. >> we, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths, that allover us are crea of us equal, is the star that guides us still, just as it guided our fore bearers through seneca falls and selma and stonewall, just as it guided all of those men and women, sung and unsung who left footprints along this great mall to hear a preacher say that we could not walk alone, to hear a king proclaim that our individual freedom is inextrekblely bound to the freedom offer soul on earth. >> the freedom of every soul. the heart of the civil rights movement. earlier today, civil rights leader and georgia congressman joan lewis talked about this historic d
recently no elected republicans elected a white house screening of "lincoln" last month. had mitch mcconnell, john boehner, lamar alexander attended, they were all invited, they would have joined not only nancy pelosi, harry reid but steven spielberg, tommy lee jones. as tip o'neill famously said about his political foe, ronald reagan, love the sinner. hate the sin. when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neill over to the white house for drinks and raise a glass to one another. there's no shortage of parties planned around inauguration
republican party of abraham lincoln. >> those extremists were alive and well this week, calling for the president's impeachment and saying president obama was acting like a king with his executive orders on gun safety. this kind of extremism gets them a 26% rating. do you think that really is what it's all about? or is it the obstruction or both? >> i think the rating is going to go down, ed. i think we're looking at potential for the republican party to be rated in the eyes of the american people much the way the entire congress is rated. do nothing and down in the teens. and as i said, that's suicide for the republican party. >> at the same retreat today, republicans were told by a pollster to stop talking about rape. pretty good advice, i would say. is this because the extremism takes over the discussion when republicans do try to talk about issues as sensitive as that? >> in many respects some of them do not know how to talk about it, ed. you heard what colin powell said, what you played there. i've heard what colin powell has said for the past 20 years or so about racism in
to others as more inspirational. i look at the highenned security during lincoln's reelection where he referenced god 14 times, trying to bring the country together during a civil war that was dividing our nation. i look at the depression and fdr, trying to tell people that fear is the thing to fear and that to come together and address the economy and go forward together. you look for words of inspiration, you look for a leader who can bring a country together and heal divisions, and that's what i'll look for, too, is what kind of tone, what kind of leader is a second term president obama going to be. >> we'll be watching along with you, jennifer. great to have your perspective. appreciate it very much. >> thank you. >>> looking ahead to the next four years with president obama in the white house, why some experts are already predicting serious second term challenges. >>> also, we have a severe flu outbreak and an update on it. why the cdc believes it's becoming a greater threat to seniors in this country. that's ahead. [ male announcer ] ok, here's the way the system works. let's say
for the seven blocks going to the capitol. four years ago, it was all the way back to the lincoln memorial, it was packed with people. governor granholm, you remember from four years ago, in order for everybody on the mall who -- face it, i mean as far as the natural -- unless you have binoculars from here, you can't see what's going on on the west wing of the capitol. every block or so, they have the giant judge bow ton -- jumbotrons so everyone only has to look about a block to see the giant screen so they can both see and hear what's going on. >> jennifer: only about 35 degrees. i don't see much condensed air coming out of your mouth so it must be a little bit warm. is it? >> yeah. the sun is out. it is probably closer to 40 degrees. i took the jacket off when i walked over here to get through the security because it was nice. it is going to be nice. they're expecting it may get a little bit colder this afternoon. maybe rain or snow tonight but people, you know, again, it is really an amazing atmosphere. the sun is shining. it is not as cold as it was four years ago. the conditions are
"lincoln." >> state dinners. >> the majority leader's office called later and said, yeah, we got the invitation that afternoon, four hours beforehand. but you invite congressmen and senators over, one on one, they'll come. >> there is an upside to cooperation. not every battle is one of opposition. begin to reframe the image of the party with the rest of the country, number one. at the end of the day, that's what people want to see, you working with the administration. to joe's point, you don't have to agree with everything, but you can at least stand there and show that we're trying to make the effort. so when you have the noise come out about, well, we want to block him at every turn, that plays on the psyche of the american people. >> mike, what'ses in it f in it republicans? well, the republicans' backs are against the wall. they owned the house of representatives. they have a midterm election in 2014. for those republicans saying, oh, well, we always win midterm electio elections, no, you don't. two elections ago, we get routed by nancy pelosi. >> let's get to a break. we ha
an invitation just to watch the movie "lincoln" over at the white house. it might have embarrassed them a little bit. these snubs are nothing new from republicans. it's dangerous politically for republicans to be seen at the white house. and there is always a tea party candidate close by, waiting to primary anybody who works with this president. the problem is in washington it's not a lack of dinners or parties. the problem is the fringe republican party who refuses to work with this president and obstruct everything. and it just might look bad at home, you know. tonight in our survey, i asked you, will republicans lead our country into another recession by refusing to acton debt court of appealing? 89% of you say yes. 11% of you say no. >>> next, it's a real wake-up call for the republican party. but it's not a wake-up call if nobody answers to the call, if you know what i mean. colin powell says that the gop has an identity crisis, identity problem, and they need to do something about it. will the republican party heed the warning? stay with us. ♪ [ female announcer ] for beautiful dry morni
ceremony, he'll be using both abraham lincoln's bible and dr. king's bible. obviously a heavy amount of symbolism there. >> and chief justice john roberts helms both of those? >> that's right and the first hispanic justice on the supreme court sonia sotomayor will to g take on. we had jen saki leading off the top of the show, your former colleague, as you guys were out on the road for the campaign, and we know that the president is now relaunching his campaign efforts for his second term to get the agenda across, leading off with gun control. do you think that organizing for action will actually work, that the catalyst of newtown combined with that of the machine that is the president's re-election style could work to get the american support the president feels he needs? >> i absolutely think so. 90% of the public thinks there should be universal background checks. you go to members of congress and they say i can't vote for that. i'm fearful of the mra and the organizing efforts that they would put together in my community, my congressional district. we know it's time to align where
rights movement in lincoln's and mlk's bibles. and then, the president of the united states is going to take his oath of office on that. >> suarez: there were ten official balls last time. this year? just two, the lowest number in the past 60 years, in order to save federal and local resources. one of the balls-- the commander-in-chief's ball-- is for members of the armed forces, as is a kid's concert intended for children of those serving in the military. along with celebrating the country's rich history, there'll be modern touches as well. all official groups involved, even the secret service, are using social media to get out updates on events, live-stream the inaugural, and deal with any issues quickly. washington, d.c., tourism groups have said they expect about 500,000 to 700,000 visitors this time. about 400,000 attended president george w. bush's second inaugural in 2005. to accommodate visitors and make money, official inaugural shops are selling all kinds of memorabilia, and luxury hotels such as the willard intercontinental have been advertising specialty packages, includi
